    it was easier than i anticipated it to be! purchase the board, have them cut it, cut out the 'notch' with an electric handsaw, cut the legs from a 1.5" dowel rod, add the leveling feet, stain, and varnish!

    yay me!

    p.s. i paid big money for one for my Janome, but because of the clean lines on this one, i did it myself for about $15 (not including the cost of power tools that i should have had anyway and will use for other projects).

    Also, just think, you can slide your scissors underneath and other tools and not worry about the fabric knocking them off table.

    You did a great job. You have inspired me to MAYBE try one...lol. Seems like it would make sewing these blankets a heck of a lot easier.
